This is an entertaining, unusual collection of stories--I thoroughly enjoyed them all, especially "Souvenirs and Photographs". They didn't seem at all dated, even though published in 1996.

"What will the future nets be like? How will people interact with them and rely on them? What kinds of crimes might take place there?" New short stories from Gregory Benford, Matthew Costello, Mickey Zucker Reichert, John De Chancie, Wil McCarthy, and 11 others posit possible futures for the Internet. The results range from the predictable (a deadly chat room relationship), to the touching (an alien observer who befriends an ill boy online), to the implausible (life-after-death within the Net). Recommended for sf collections.
